That does make sence, Harmless.
And I said, "Aw gee honey didn't you know that ALL harmonica players have to have
40 harmonicas, 6 amps, 7 mics, pedals, and a P.A. system?" I am at a point I have to
hide new harmonicas and such.
I was taught to put marbles in my mouth, and without swallowing them
learn to blow solid notes. Now, the marbles would sometimes get blown out
and roll under a cabinet, couch, chair, etc, to never be seen again.
I kept up my practice until I eventually lost all my marbles, now I can play
well enough to get invited out.
There are some lessons linked at the top of the site, I guess that James had a vision for many more resources but alas it has yet to come about.
My issue with this idea is that any such thread might become convoluted with random questions and digressions and it would be difficult to wade through for the answer to a particular question. It would serve everyone better if a specific question simply gets posted in the forum as usual and answered directly. If those topics become laden with useful info, they can easily be pinned later as a sticky topic.
At some point in the future, it might be an idea to collate links to various useful threads into one topic, like a Frequently Asked Questions section. However, at the moment, we're still in that teething stage...
Hey Keith, I'm glad you're getting back into harmonica. I bet you'll find the time spent on the uke really benefited you on harp too. This thread seems like a great idea. Thanks!
Do you think this forum would benefit from a New Player Questions pinned thread?
Although I first came here some time ago, I never really got started learning to play, everyone seemed to be talking about putting up videos, if I remember correctly, so most are intermediate to experienced players. I am definately a beginner, even now, as I went off & started learning to play ukes, but I am returning to my 'harps to learn how to play them. I know that I will likely struggle to bend & overblow, but there isn't anything on this forum to teach how to do these techniques as far as I know. Yes, I know there are videos online, but some things could be explained here, surely.
So this is why I ask if you think we should have a New Player Questions pinned thread where this type of questions can be asked & answered in a friendly manner.
Would love to be able to play like that - but embouchure & breath control had me beat when I first tried!
Going to have another go this Autumn/Winter.
a good suggestion to post thevideo link in a topic until it is solved.
I could have a look, if I could get access to it, although it may well be a bug with the forum software.
The workaround would be to forget about the profile side and just post video links in a videos thread or threads.
We have 989 members according to the home page...............surely someone knows how to fix it !
How long before this video opening "glitch" fixes itself?
A lot of videos have been posted over the last 2 weeks and I have not been able to open any unless the link is provided!!
Most frustrating ! !
........& having consulted on here & another harmonica website - a Seydel Orchestra S (LC) will be winging its way to me very soon.
Thanks for your replies fellas - putting it on the N+1 list.
Hello again,I haven't received your reply regarding the tabs for this tune or are you happy enough to listen to the video i sent.Eric33
Did you go to Folkworks summer school? I went for several years. It's a great week and I learnt a lot from it and made some good friends some of whom I still play with regularly.
Lucky you having Kathryn Tickell as your tutor. She's fabulous on both pipes and fiddle.[/quote]
I went to Dartington Summer School this year, they have some folk in amongst all the classical, I'd like to give Folkworks a go though.
